I'm looking for some advice. I am 44, half way through my two years in\nbraces to correct the twisted and overcrowded smile I have from\nbritish dental neglect.\n\nNow I live in USA, I decided to fix my teeth and the braces seem to be\nworking well. Things are straightening up but I have uneven wear on\nthe tops of my front teeth, kind of a rollercoaster smile now, legacy\nof ignoring the problem. I'm not too worried about it because I'm one\nof those people who's lip covers their teeth most of the time anyway.\nI really wanted to my teeth straightened as more of a structural issue\nthan a cosmetic one.\n\nThey are telling me now though that I should have veneers too or it is\nlikely my teeth will go back to their bad habits. I'm disappointed, I\nsuffered the braces to fix this permanently and am resigned to wearing\na retainer at night to make sure. But I wasn't planning on veneers.\n\nI can't help feeling this is more about my dentists bottom line than\nmy grin protection.\n\nAny advice? If I forego the veneers will snaggliness return?
